Thursday: What is going on in US immigration detention centers? Over
1300 children were detained for up to a year in adult immigration centers
over the past four years.
Nation- wide protests called “Papa can you hear me” are being planned
in the lead up to this Sunday’s Father’s Day. Protesters aim to draw attention to the impact on families of detention and deportation, as well as
immigrant detention center conditions. Our guests are Xiomara Corpeno,
of the Coalition for Humane Immigrants Rights and Catalina Nieto of the
Detention Watch Network.
Even as grassroots support is growing for Edward Snowden the latest
US whistle blower in the National Security Agency spying scandal, the
San Francisco LGBT Pride Committee is standing by their decision thus
far to deny WikiLeaks whistle-blower Bradley Manning, a gay man, the
position of Pride’s Grand Marshall. Our guest is Joey Cain, former San
Francisco Pride Board President and the man who nominated Manning for
the position, as well as community organizer Patricia Keenan.
And for our weekly “Earth Watch”, Navajo Nation member Wahleah Johns
gives the latest update on the Black Mesa Water Coalition.
